buying artisan granola might be my biggest grocery shopping vice; homemade is so much more economical and the possibilities are endless?.
_ preheat oven to 300f
_ heat 1/2 cup honey + 1/2 cup butter; mix in 3.5 cups rolled oats, 1 cup almonds, 2 tbsp lavender, splash of almond extract, 2 tsp sea salt and 1/4 tsp ground [red] peppercorns
_ spread onto baking sheet in one single layer
_ bake for 40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes
_ before the last 10 minutes, add dried cranberries/cherries
i always look to heidi swanson's beautiful granola recipes for measure and inspiration!
